"Yep that is good advice Odin, I think buying a road bike was not really on the table. I enjoy the trails to much and would like to spend o few decades more before being a road rider."

"I would keep the scale as a winter hack. If it turns out to be as wet as last year putting a brand new full suss on to wet clarty trails by any means would be upsetting. They just cost you if you ride them hard through a heavy winter. Just ride…"

Any one want to do swap?

I have two icetech six bolt rotors brand new, 160 & 180 m for a swap.

Due to being let down by a well know internet company, I am in need of a pair of XT rapidfire pods triple shifter 10 speed.

If anyone wants do a stright swap gives us note.

Advice please on XT rapidfire pods

Hi hope someone can advise me please?

I have recently bought a new XT group set for my bike and today fitted it all so far, but after putting everything together and doing the final thing of setting the front derailleur the rapid pod only moves for a double chainset instead of a triple.

Does anyone know where I can buy a XT rapidfire pod just for the front derailleur. Hopefully that doesn't cast an arm and a limb.

Thanks Ham
